ForexLive Asia FX news: UK’s weekend threat to quit trade talks

Forex news for Asia trading Monday 22 May 2017
GBP gapped lower in the very early session here, bounced to cover much of the hole, but fell away again. Selling was on option-related interest combined with UK threats to quit trade talks with the EU over the €100bn ‘divorce bill’. (Note, formal Brexit talks are scheduled to begin June 19).
